Assistant or Associate Professor (Virology)
The Department of Microbiology and Immunology at the University of Iowa invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in virology at the Assistant or Associate Professor level. This tenure-track position includes a 12-month salary, benefits, competitive start-up package, and modern laboratory facilities. Successful applicants will be expected to be highly collaborative, establish and maintain an extramurally funded research program, participate in departmental teaching activities, and participate in activities associated with an NIH-funded virology training grant and the Helen C. Levitt Center for Viral Pathogenesis and Disease.
All applicants must have a Ph.D., D.V.M., and/or M.D., postdoctoral viral research experience, and a strong record of research accomplishments. Applicants at the Associate Professor level must already have an established and funded research program and demonstrate the ability to teach at graduate and undergraduate levels. Although all areas of animal virology will be considered, we are particularly interested in individuals studying viral replication, viral pathogenesis, computational virology, or the host response to viral infection as these processes relate to human disease.
The Department of Microbiology and Immunology consists of 30 primary and secondary faculty members with strengths in virology, immunology, and bacteriology. To learn more about the Department of Microbiology and Immunology, please visit https://www.medicine.uiowa.edu/microbiology/.
